Aiba Pro-Boxing pugilist Nick Abaka (pictured) said: ?In most of his clips, I have seen Mayweather waste no punches, he is an accurate hard hitter.?
The Kenya Defence Forces boxer says he loves the way Mayweather can take control of a game and change it course in his favour.
Kenya Prison boxer and Aiba Pro-Boxing welterweight sensation Rayton Okwiri says: ?Mayweather has this grit to handle any kind of boxer. It is hard to tackle a boxer who has perfected his defensive antics like Mayweather.?
However, Okwiri loves the aggressiveness of Pacquiao. He says the Philippine has speed, power and endurance just as his opponent.
Olympian Elizabeth Andiego says: ?I believe Mayweather is going to win the bout based on his counter attacks and swift movements in the ring.?
World Professional Boxing Federation youth title champion Francis Kimani who will be defending his title next week in Kitwe, Zambia, says: ?In most occasions that Pacquiao has lost, he failed on his guard. Pacquiao is an aggressive boxer who keeps on attacking and throwing punches ? a very old tactic in the sport.?
Africa Boxing Union champion Daniel Wanyonyi says: ?Mayweather doesn?t rush to an opponent, he allows the opponent to come to him then he strikes and dodges. His lethal punches are always on target.?
Former Universal Boxing Council and World Boxing Federation title holder David Kiilu believes Mayweather will win. Other local professional boxers behind Mayweather are Sarah Achieng?, Jane Kavulani and James Onyango.
Michael Nyawade says: ?I know Mayweather will rove to the world that he is the best boxer of his generation.? But Universal Boxing Organisation welterweight champion Benedetta Kaloki says she will put her money on Pacquiao.
